Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Speaker recommendations

Hello and welcome to the forum. There's good advice aplenty here and I will try to make some suggestions for you. If I read the specs correctly, your Yamaha receiver has 100w/Ch which is likely enough power to get you started well.

Speakers are very personal things and it will be easier to make suggestions with some additional information, so here come the questions.
1.) Are you looking for an audio-only listening setup or do you want it to be part of home theatre?
2.) What is the size of the room where you want your setup?
3.) Do you know what kind of speakers you are willing to own? For example a small stand-mounted two-way, a large floor-standing 3-way. Are you interested in planars, which are often quite large or need a lot of space?
4.) Do you have a significant other whose furnishings sense and tastes must be accommodated?
5.) What kinds of music do you listen to?
6.) What is most important to you in that music--what do you care most about the system giving you?
7.) Do you want to limit yourself to new equipment or are you interested in buying used equipment?

If you can think through and answer these questions, I think you will get better help.
